    Seems "barn find" is the panacea to all potential restoration challenges.

    What a pile of junk

    Seems most of the trim and fittings are their, if someone was restoring one of these it could be very handy!

    I think the lowered suspension look quite suits it!

    How do you drive it with the gearbox in the boot? ... Interior does look useable though ..

    Not long left now, any guesses on the final bid?

    I'm going to £1400.

    You could find a decent one for 10/15K. How much is the restoration on that?!!

    You certainly could, however the cars you mention will have been restored at some stage, and I can tell you it would have cost a great deal more!

    If you where in the process of restoring a 112 and you needed something like a rear window this car would instantly make sense. You wont find a set of windows just anywhere for these and a windscreen on its own is probably well into four figures.
